Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I liked and had these players when they were no names:
Chris Young (ARZ)
and MORE !!!
I got you beat!
I had Peavy, Johan Santana, Holiday, Atkins, Crawford, and Hanley just to name a few.
I can still remember the guy in the draft telling me Peavy was a nobody and with his strikeout per inning ratio... I knew he was due for the breakout.
I picked Siena over Vandy, Virginia Commonwealth over Duke, and the Giants over the Pats. I was a Rockies fan before everyone else, and I discovered Fuentes this year (8 IP, 0 H, 0 R, and 5-6 K). But I don't go around bragging about it now, do I?

That is true. That is my point. This stuff is pretty easy.
There is nothing special about making the right picks and pick ups, it doesn't require much knowledge at all... just have to know where to look and what to look at.
I'll give you a hint. Never EVER look at a pitchers previous ERA or WHIP... EVER.
And never go by a hitters previous yearsstats and expect a carry over.
Here's a tip just for basic drafting. Drafting contract hitters is one of the best things you can do. Look at Manny and Tek right now... do you think there is some reason they are hitting HR's? It wouldn't have anything to do with money would it? nah! Baseball players don't play for money, they play for the love of the game right? That'w why Manny Ramirez sold his grill on EBAY ... for the love of the game right? Thats why Manny Ramirez is the 3rd best player in fantasy up to this point in his "contract" year. Comming off the worst year of his career I might add. EVERY baseball expert saw this comming, even half of the layman saw it. Only idiots and rookies passed Manny up in the draft after the 20th pick or so.
